In the Poetry Roundtable workshops I offer a personalized approach designed to inspire poets (both beginning and experienced)  to experiment, hone their skills, and deepen their passion for this impactful craft.  This workshop is ideal for those who have a serious interest in writing poetry, and in learning  from other poets’ honest responses.  The Poetry Roundtable meets on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 to 9:15 pm at my home in Newton.

I am a poet, visual artist, teacher, and arts activist. I am a recipient of an NEA Fellowship in Poetry and three Mass Cultural Council LCC grants. Three books of my poetry have been published. My poems have been set to music and many times anthologized.  I am the Artistic Director and founder of PoetryInPlace, which creates public poetry installations that connect contemporary poets (and their poetry) with a wider audience. I received a BS from MIT in Art/Design and an MFA from the Tyler School of Art. 

Held Together Arts

“The Poetry Roundtable  has taken my work to another level!

"Grey focuses on individual strengths of participants and expertly facilitates discussion.

“so much thoughtful and objective insight...

“engaging, insightful, compelling and fun!

“I look forward to the weekly poetry workshops, and during the hour ride home my brain is rushing with ideas and excitement.

“What keeps me coming back is the other-worldliness of Grey’s  literary intuition, conception and invention.

“Grey is so generous and cares about the myriad expressions of what it means to be human in the world.
